In this time of pandemic and upheaval, we will explore together how to best protect ourselves, both our bodies and minds, so that we can meet this moment of fear, grief and uncertainty with an appropriate and skilful response. With mindfulness it is possible to nurture the best in us, individually and collectively, so that we can bring healing to our own hearts and to the pain in the collective heart.

We can be the soothing balm of healing for a world in crisis by practicing peace in our daily lives and by actively participating in mindful collective awakening.
